Fine looking pipe! I really like the stain, stem color and shank treatment. Personally, I wouldn't have put quite so much bend in the stem, but I probably will never be able to smoke it and certainly never would have gotten that far to begin with.
It's smooth, Carlos. And it feels just fine and dandy. Really a lighter side pipe, too; so it could easily be a clencher. It has been sanded up to 600 and cleaned. Normally I would want to go to at least 800 and then buff it with carnuba, but I don't have a buffing wheel station set up at the moment. Just have to put one together. I will polish up the pipe to give it a bit more shine, too.
